Bordering the village of Shefford Woodlands and overlooking Berkshire's famed Valley of the Racehorse, our inn has a hospitality pedigree that stretches back 450 years, to when it first sheltered drovers herding livestock from Wales to London.
Today, the newly refurbished pub and its fourteen en-suite guest rooms offer an adventurous drinks menu, flavoursome modern British cooking and luxurious accommodation with outstanding value and a warm, relaxed welcome.
Their approach to food is all about bringing together the best ingredients, simply and deliciously. Rooted in classic modern British cooking, their regularly changing menu showcases the freshest meat and fish and finest artisan products from around the country, while their diverse daily specials let us put local and seasonal ingredients centre stage. The prices are appetising too – most of the main courses are well under £20.
They source their wines from Berry Bros. & Rudd, Bibendum and other specialist suppliers
Whether your preference is one of the 70 wines – 28 of them available by the glass – a hand-pulled local cask ale or a premium brand from theirwide range of spirits, you’ll find The Pheasant’s bar rich in choice and quality. They source our wines from Berry Bros. & Rudd, Bibendum and other specialist suppliers, have 10 vodkas, 30 whiskies, nine beers including their very own Pheasant Ale and award-winning mixers by Fever-Tree.
And there are plenty of ways to savour your drink.

We also have a smart, sheltered courtyard for our smoker friends.
